Think of how many people are dying right now & have a place in your heart for them, please! We must stop hunger before more innocent people kick the can!
Hunger is a huge problem in our world. It can destroy whole towns with diesease & violence. We must find a solution!
When people don't eat, hunger can destroy them from the inside with dieseases. Around 30 000 people die everyday because of this. One thing we could do is send aid workers to cure these types of sickness.
If we don't do anything, war could be started over a simple debate about hunger. Hunger can drive people insane & violence can occur. We must help the hungry before violence happens.
To help the hungry, we could send seeds for fruit trees. While they are growing, we can keep sending supply kits using money from a poverty tax the government could create.
You can help by sponsoring a child. Please donate or try to help in another way. You can make a difference!
"In 1999, the poverty rate dropped from 12.7 percent to 11.8 percent, the lowest rate in two decades. Since President Clinton and Vice President Gore passed their Economic Plan in 1993, the poverty rate has declined from 15.1 percent in 1993 to 11.8 percent last year – the largest six-year drop in poverty in nearly 30 years (1964-1970)."
